Protect Your Business from Phishing Attacks

Protect Your Business from Phishing Attacks

In the digital era, phishing has become a common form of scamming people and businesses from large amounts of money.

We live in a digital era where every person and business are connected through the world wide web. Phishers usually pose as spam and pop-ups that are often hard to detect. Once a phisher has your information, they can use it to wreak all kinds of havoc on your credit score and your business. You have now become a victim of identity theft. Phishing is one of the most popular and devious forms of attack that your business can face. Here are ways to protect your business from phishing attacks.

Protect Your Business From Phishing Attacks

  • Establish a process: Companies can and should be able to identify fraudulent requests by developing a procedure around the practice of transferring funds. Only a few select employees should be able to make transactions and have their supervisor approve of the charge.
  • Reinforcement is necessary: Constant reminders about the importance of protocol is crucial in keeping everything under control. Some companies send “bait emails” to lure incautious employees into a trap. You want the percentage of employees who click on the false links to be zero, and with the proper training and practice, it will be.
  • Culture Change: Fraud is most successful at companies where questioning one’s superiors is frowned upon. If this is your company, change your dynamic to make it acceptable–and even encouraged–to questions a transaction, no matter the rank of the approver.

It’s important to have the proper procedure when it comes to phishing attacks, but it’s nearly impossible to eliminate the risk of all cyber attacks. For a quality business insurance policy that will protect you against phishing and cyber attacks across the globe, contact the independent insurance professionals at Lloyd S.
